Who is the BLCh Guide for

In addition to regulations, permits and codes of practice, there are thousands of publications and standards directly and indirectly applicable to terminals, ranging from short, general and relatively simple documents, to those that are highly specialised, complex and hundreds of pages long. The BLCH Guide covers the basic principles and criteria needed for day to day terminal operations and provides references to more detailed or specific publications, standards and codes of practice.

The BLCH Guide is broadly based on the CDI-T audit protocol and is primarily aimed at providing background information for CDI-T auditors, who may not have knowledge and experience of all terminal activities. It does not replace any regulations or standards and should be seen as complementary to them. Where there are any discrepancies local regulations and standards should apply.
